cisco. If the trip had been made at the expense of the City, on the 
sum of $20 per day, it would have cost the taxpayers the big amount 
of $75.36. 

Providing for the Studying of Reports and Preparation of Legislation 
to Be Acted Upon by the Board. 

Supervisor Lewis stated that as part time Supervisors the members 
do not have sufficient time to carry out their own daily routine and 
still have time to digest the various reports that are submitted for 
their consideration. Some of these reports are of vital interest to 
the City and some require legislation to effectuate the recommenda- 
tions contained therein. The Mayor has now appointed a cabinet to 
study the DeLeuw Report and make recommendations to the Board 
for its action. The Board should be either a full-time Board or it 
should have somebody who will study all reports and prepare any 
legislation that is to be acted upon by the Board. 

Request for Information Relative to Meetings of the Mayor's Cabinet. 

Supervisor Christopher requested that the Board secure from the 
Mayor's Cabinet a copy of the minutes of each of its meetings so that 
the Board will be informed at all times as to the actions of the 
Cabinet. 

So ordered. 

Adopted.

SPECIAL ORDER— 2:00 P.M. 

Appeal Withdrawn. 

The following, from the Public Buildings, Lands and City Planning 
Committee, was taken up: 

Disapproving Decision of the City Planning Commission by Its Resolu- 
tion No. 3507, Dated November 4, 1948, Disapproving Application to 
Rezone Property Bounded by Portola Drive, Burnett Avenue, La 
Place Avenue and Twenty-sixth Street, From First Residential Dis- 
trict to Second Residential District. 

File No. 3520, Resolution No. . (Series of 1939) . 

January 3, 1949 — Consideration continued to January 10, 1949. 

Discussion. 

Supervisor MacPhee suggested that the appeal be withdrawn with- 
out prejudice so that the applicant could sit down with the City Plan- 
ning Commission with the thought in mind of rezoning the entire 
area of Twin Peaks. 

Mr. Walker Peddicord. representing the City Attorney, in response 
to questions as to time limitations and reapplication for rezoning the 
property, stated that the Board has to act upon the appeal within the 
time limitation as prescribed by law. If the City Planning Commis- 
sion is sustained today, no application can be made to rezone the 
property involved for a period of one year unless an entirely new 
plan is submitted. If all of the area on Twin Peaks is considered for 
rezoning, then the piece of property in today's appeal could be in- 
cluded in the new plan and the applicant would not have to wait for 
the expiration of one year. 

Mr. James R. McCarthy, representing the City Planning Commis- 
sion, explained that the action of the City Planning Commission was 
taken without prejudice. The position of the Commission was that 
this was too small an area to rezone when the entire area of Twin 
Peaks was zoned First Residential. The Commission would rather 
consider the entire area instead of just a small piece of it. 



MONDAY, JANUARY 10, 1949 17 

The following persons spoke on behalf of the appellant: 

Mrs. Grace Perego, representing herself. 

Mr. Henry J. Kleefish, attorney for Mrs. Perego. 

Mr. Milton Morris, representing the Associated Home Builders. 

The following spoke on behalf of the City Planning Commission: 

Mr. James R. McCarthy, Acting Director of Planning. 

Refused Adoption. 

The roll was called and the foregoing was refused adoption by the 
following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Halley, Lewis, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, John 
J. Sullivan. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, MacPhee, 
J. Joseph Sullivan.

livan — 5.

Motion for Suspension of the Rules for the Immediate Reconsideration 
of the Vote. 

Supervisor Mead, seconded by Supervisor John J. Sullivan, moved 
suspension of the rules for the immediate reconsideration of the vote 
by which the foregoing legislation was defeated. 

Motion defeated by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Halley, Lewis, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, John 
J. Sullivan — 6. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, MacPhee, 
J. Joseph Sullivan — 5. 

Motion to Expunge the Record. 

Supervisor Mead, seconded by Supervisor Mancuso, moved that the 
record be expunged. 

Point of Order. 

Supervisor Christopher rose to a point of order. You cannot circum- 
vent parliamentary order by moving to expunge. The proper motion 
should be to reconsider. 

Motion to Rescind. 

Supervisor Mead, seconded by Supervisor Mancuso, moved that the 
Board rescind its action. 

Mr. Walker Peddicord, in response to a question as to the legality 
of such a motion, stated that a motion to rescind action is one that 
can go to either the main action of the Board or parliamentary action. 
Believe that the Board's constant use of such action has made it legal. 
Six votes are required on this motion. 

Motion carried by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
Lewis, MacPhee, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, 
John J. Sullivan — 11. 

Appeal Withdrawn. 

Mrs. Grace Perego stated that she desired to withdraw the appeal. 

No objections and so ordered. 

Mr. Henry J. Kleefish was instructed by the Chair to direct a com- 
munication to the Board confirming the verbal statement of Mrs. 
Perego, and he agreed to do so.

SPECIAL ORDER— 3:00 P.M. 

Appearance of Mr. Arthur C. Jenkins, Pursuant to Invitation Extended 
by Board on January 24th, to Inform Board of His Plans for Comple- 
tion of the Municipal Railway Survey. 

Mr. Arthur C. Jenkins, in explaining what had transpired to date 
vi'ith respect to the survey of the Municipal Railway, said that it was 
not possible to submit anything definite on the survey after 30 days. 
It was his understanding that the progress report was to inform the 
Board what had been done up to the time of the submission of the 
report. He did not believe that statements should be made at this 
time because with the survey in the preliminary stages future de- 
velopments may change the ideas in mind at the present. Believe that 
no statements should be made until the survey is completed. 

The idea of the survey is to take those things that are being prob- 
lems to the people of San Francisco and try to work out some method 
of economy in the operation of the Municipal Railway. To complete 
a comprehensive report in this matter it will take the entire four 
months. The report will contain information as to the financial situ- 
ation of the Municipal Railway and also as to the management of 
the railway and what can be done to remedy the situation.

Monthly Employees Required to Work on Holidays Due to 24-Hour,

Discussion. 

Supervisor Mead, addressing his remarks to Mr. Scott, stated that 
at the Finance Committee meeting certain information was requested

ment was made to the Committee that if this money was not appro- 
priated that the service would be discontinued. Your remarks in 



MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1949 89 

connection with this matter were not in good taste, the members 
of the Board and its committees are entitled to a certain amount of 
dignity and respect. 

Supervisor Gallagher explained what transpired at the Finance 
Committee meeting and remarked that the statement was made that 
if the money was not forthcoming the men would not be employed 
on these days. 

Mr. Scott of the Municipal Railway said that he did not recall 
making that statement but if he did not receive the money it would 
be impossible to employ the men. Double time has to be paid on 
holidays and Sundays. The money in the budget was reduced by 
this Board and subsequently you raised the pay of the operators of 
the street cars and buses. It is necessary that the railroad have a' 
24-hour operation. If I made such a statement I did not intend 
to make it. 

Supervisor Christopher remarked that the manner in which the 
men were employed on Sundays and holidays has been very poorly 
planned; at one time there is a lot of men and the next time there 
isn't anybody employed.

apology. Motion ruled out of order.

Committee submitted its report that the Board would then consider 
the matter sitting as a Committee of the Whole. 

Supervisor Gallagher remarked that as a member of the Finance 
Committee it did not make any difference to him whether or not the 
matter was referred to committee, but if it was so referred he would 
oppose any proposal for the Board to later consider the Finance Com- 
mittee report as a Committee of the Whole.

Board to consider matters as important as this while sitting as a Com- 
mittee of the Whole and that he believed that the Board should so do.

would have every opportunity to appear before the Finance Com- 
mittee and speak on behalf of any classification if tliey so desire.

Present: Supervisor Lewis. 



138 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1949 

Requesting the Public Utilities Commission to Give Serious Considera- 
tion to Reducing the Price of Car Tickets for School Children. 

File No. 3820, Resolution No. 8410 (Series of 1939). 

Discussion. 

Mr. Landis, President of the Public Utilities Commission, stated 
that the Commission cannot understand why the railroad can be 
asked to conduct its affairs in a businesslike manner without resort- 
ing to the tax rate and then on the other hand it is asked to unbalance 
its budget and go back to the tax rate and effect a different budget 
through charitable endeavors. The Commission is opposed to any 
ideas along this line. 

Mr. Turner, Manager of Public Utilities, remarked that over a 
period of years the difference between school tickets and regular fare 
has been 50 per cent. 

Mr. McKee, member of the Public Utilities Commission, explained 
that before any determination is made in this matter it would be 
wise for the Board to find out who is responsible to get the children 
to school. Believe that it is the responsibility of the Board of 
Education. 

Mr. Turner stated that it has been estimated that the differential 
between 3Ks'' and 5'- per ride would amount to $190,000 per year. In 
increasing the fare for school tickets the Commission liberalized the 
privileges for the use of the school tickets. The age limitation was 
done away with and persons of any age now attending school can use 
the school tickets. 

Supervisor MacPhee, in explaining his vote, stated that although 
he was in sympathy with the legislation he would not be able to vote 
for it unless it was amended. 

Motion to Amend. 

Supervisor MacPhee, seconded by Supervisor Mancuso, moved that 
the legislation be amended by deleting the last six words, "from 5'- 
to 3V8<' per ride." 

Motion carried by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. 
Sullivan — 10. 

No: Supervisor Lewis — 1. 

Adoption. 

The foregoing, amended and reading as printed above, was adopted 
by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
Lewis, MacPhee, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, 
John J. Sullivan — 11. 

Consideration Continued. 
SPECIAL ORDER— 3:00 P.M. 

The following recommendation of the Finance Committee, hereto- 
fore considered, was taken up: 

Present: Supervisors Gallagher, Fazackerley, MacPhee. 

Authorizing Cancellation of Lease of Lake Merced Boat and Fishing 
Privileges Heretofore Entered Into With Charles A. Kay and Michael 
Shrum, Pursuant to Resolution No. 6259 (Series of 1939). 

File No. 3577, Resolution No (Series of 1939). 

February 21, 1949 — Consideration continued to February 28, 1949. 



MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1949 139 

Privilege of the Floor. 

Supervisor Gallagher, seconded by Supervisor Mead, moved privi- 
lege of the floor for Mr. Castagnetto, representing Mr. Kay. 

Discussion. 

Mr. Castagnetto explained how Mr. Kay was complying with all of 
the requests of the Public Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Pracy, General Manager of the Water Department, informed 
the Board that since Mr. Kay entered into the lease, the Commission 
has had a hard time to get Mr. Kay to live up to the terms of the lease. 

Point of Order. 

Supervisor Lewis raised a point of order. The Board had no juris- 
diction in the matter. This is a legal question and Section 93 of the 
Charter does not give the Board any power to cancel the lease. The 
City Attorney should decide whether or not the lease should be can- 
celled. 

Mr. Peddicord, representing the City Attorney, explained that he 
had not read the lease and before making any answers he would like 
to go over the lease carefully. 

The Chair ruled that the point of order would be preserved until 
after the hearing of arguments. 

Supervisor Gallagher requested that the Deputy City Attorney who 
approved the cancellation of the lease, as to form, be sent for. 
Request granted. 

Mr. Peddicord stated that the lease itself was executed by a resolu- 
tion of the Board and in order to make the cancellation legal it should 
be cancelled by the Board. 

Request for a Legal Opinion. 

Supervisor Lewis said that he would like to receive a legal opinion 
from the City Attorney stating that the Board has the authority to 
cancel the lease. 

Motion to Postpone. 

Supervisor MacPhee, seconded by Supervisor John J. Sullivan,

140 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1949 

30-day written notice to the other; lessor to be held harmless from 
any and all claims for damages; lessee to obtain public liability 
insurance in amount of $100,000/$300,000 and property damage in 
amount of $50,000; agreement shall not be assigned without written 
consent of lessor.) 

February 21, 1949 — Consideration continued to February 28, 1949. 

Discussion. 

Mr. Julius Girod, Superintendent of Parks, explained that the 
former Japanese tenants were notified at least three times prior to 
their evacuation that unless they cleaned the premises the Park Com- 
mission would have to cancel the lease, and for that reason they 
were not considered for this proposed lease. 

Mr. Harvey E. Teller, President of the Park Commission, informed 
the Board as to the terms of the lease and said^that the Commission 
does not advertise on these matters because it wants to investigate 
each bidder and pick out the man who it thinks is best qualified to 
serve the public, who might not necessarily be the highest bidder. 

He further stated that the Park Commission has established a policy 
in connection with these leases which is as follows: By doing it the 
way it is now being done the Commission can pick the best man 
possible. Under the plan the Commission is able to judge the appli- 
cant's appearance and how he acts towards the public. A high degree 
of skill is required and by personally interviewing each applicant 
the Commission is able to determine whether or not a person 
possesses the necessary qualifications. 

Motion to Postpone. 

Supervisor MacPhee, seconded by Supervisor Mancuso, moved that 
the matter be postponed for one week. 
No objections and motion carried.

Angeles had already introduced a bill in the State Legislature con- 
templating the formation of a Rapid Transit Authority; that seven 
senators, including Senator O'Gara, have introduced a similar bill 
for the nine counties of the Bay Area and that the time was propi- 
tious for considering the bill. Accordingly a meeting of the Bay Area 
Transit Committee was being called for March 17 at the hour of 
10:00 a. m. in the Chambers of the Board, for the purpose of deter- 
mining whether such a bill should be enacted and if so the kind of

Supervisor MacPhee requested that he be assured that in event

Consideration of Salary Standardization Measure. 
Statement and Motion by Supervisor Gallagher. 

On January 19, 1949, I moved, seconded by Supervisor MacPhee, 
and the Board adopted, the following motion: 

"I offer all of such requests as, supported by necessary data and 
filed with this Board, seek adjustment in the schedule of compen- 
sation set forth in the Salary and Wage Survey of the Civil Service 
Commission, dated January 15, 1949, as amendments to said schedule 
of compensations and I move with respect to such proposed amend- 
ments to the schedule of compensations, that the data presented to 
and considered by this Board as warranting sucli amendments, be 
transmitted to the Civil Service Commission for review and analysis, 
and report thereon to this Board, together with a report as to what 
other changes, and the cost thereof, such proposed amendments would 
require to maintain an equitable relationship with other rates in 
said schedule. 

"For the purposes of this motion, the highest salary rate or range 
requested, by employees or their representatives, to be established 
for each particular classification in, or in connection with, the data 
submitted and relied upon as warranting an adjustment in the sched- 
ule of compensations proposed by the Civil Service Commission 
is hereby proposed as an amendment to said schedule of compensa- 
tions, and the Clerl? of the Board is authorized to tabulate such 
requested rates or ranges of salary and transmit such tabulation to 
the Civil Service Commission together with such data." 

On behalf of and as a recommendation of the Finance Committee, 
I now move to amend the foregoing motion and File No. 3618, 
entitled "An Ordinance Fixing and Determining Schedules of Com- 
pensation to Be Paid Municipal Officers and Employees and Non- 
Certificated Employees of the San Francisco Unified School District 
Whose Offices and Positions Are Allocated to Classifications Specified 
Herein and Compensations for Which Are Subject to the Provisions 
of Section 151 and Section 151.1 of the Charter; Providing That the 
Said Scliedules of Compensation Shall Be Effective Beginning July 1, 
1949," to provide that the respective salaries or salary ranges set forth 
opposite the following positions be established as the rates of com- 
pensation for such positions and that the rates of compensation for 
all other positions set forth in File No. 3618 be fixed and established 
as originally set forth in said file and as recommended by the Civil 
Service Commission in its "Salary and Wage Survey Report and 
Recommendations for the Fiscal Year 1949-1950." 

Motion seconded by Supervisor MacPhee. 

Explanation of Procedure. 

Mr. Walker Peddicord, Deputy City Attorney: The Charter pro- 
vides that amendments proposed to the Salary Standardization Ordi- 
nance shall be referred to the Civil Service Commission. That was 
done, report made, and now those amendments are back in the Board. 
Those amendments were proposed by one motion. The Finance Com- 



164 MONDAY, MARCH 7, 1949 

mittee is now proceeding by this motion to amend the motion which 
was formerly made to amend the Salary Standardization Ordinance, 
by presenting various increases which are different from the original 
amendment. The motion is to amend the proposed ordinance by 
inserting the proposed amendments. 

Statement by Supervisor Lewis. 

Supervisor Lewis suggested that the recommendations of the 
Finance Committee be temporarily postponed and afford an oppor- 
tunity to any member of the Board to make such examination as he 
may desire with respect to the various classifications, from A to Z, 
and if such examination should disclose no difference between his 
and the Finance Committee's recommendations, there would be no 
objection to the motion; otherwise, he would ask that he be given 
an opportunity to check the proposed amendments with certain 
recommendations he is desirous of making. 

Supervisor MacPhee strenuously objected to the proposal of Super- 
visor Lewis, contending that it was his understanding that when the 
entire matter had been referred to the Finance Committee for study 
and recommendation, and it had supervisorial acquiescense; further, 
all members of the Board were invited to attend the hearings and 
present to the committee such amendments as they saw fit. 

Motion — Lost. 

Supervisor Lewis stated that he did not intend to take the recom- 
mendation of any member of the Board with respect to salary stand- 
ardization, and accordingly moved that the recommendations of the 
Finance Committee be temporarily delayed until such time as mem- 
bers of this Board have had the opportunity to make such amend- 
ments to the salary standardization ordinance as they desired. 

Motion lost for want of a second. 

Motion for Postponement — Recess to 9:00 P. M. 

Supervisor Mead also stated that he has had no opportunity to 
look over the recommendations of the Finance Committee and 
accordingly moved that the matter be put over to Wednesday morn- 
ing at 10:00 a. m., with the understanding that the Board consider 
the matter sitting as a committee of the whole and that the Board 
continue in session until such time as everyone interested has had 
an opportunity to be heard, and to continue until the deadline, if 
necessary. Motion seconded by Supervisor McMurray. 

Point of Order— Well Taken. 

Supervisor Gallagher rose to a point of order, explaining that 
Supervisor Mead did not adhere to parliamentary procedure in that 
his motion should have been proposed as a substitute. The Chair 
ruled the point of order well taken, and accordingly. Supervisor 
Mead renewed his motion in the form of a substitute, with Supervisor 
McMurray seconding the substitute motion. 

Amendment to Substitute. 

Supervisor Lewis moved as an amendment to the substitute that 
the Board recess until Wednesday at 9:00 a. m., and consider the 
salary standardization matter as a Board of Supervisors and not in 
committee of the whole. 

Motion lost for want of a second. 

The President suggested to Supervisor Mead that his motion be 
worded to read that the Board recess until Wednesday morning at 
10:00 a. m., at which time a motion would then be made to have the 
Board sit as a committee of the whole. 

At this juncture, Supervisor Mead withdrew his substitute motion. 



MONDAY, MARCH 7, 1949 165

Objections.

on Wednesday; further, that he believed the recommendations of the 
Finance Committee should be either amended, accepted or rejected, 
but should be acted upon immediately.

Lewis, MacPhee, Mancuso, J. Joseph Sullivan — 8.

Ayes: Supervisors Lewis, McMurray, Mead, John J. Sullivan — 4. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley,

B23, Director, Bureau of Accounts, Public Utilities Commission —

Ayes: Supervisors Lewis, McMurray — 2. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 9. 

B27, Supervisor of Accounts and Reports — proposed range of $608- 
755. Motion seconded by Supervisor Mead. 

Supervisor Gallagher rose to a point of order and expressed his 
belief that the position could not now be considered because data 
supporting such increase in pay as has been proposed by Supervisor 
Lewis, had not heretofore been referred to the Civil Service Commis- 
sion. 

Explanation of Procedure. 

Mr. Walker Peddicord, Deputy City Attorney: You are now seek- 
ing to amend the motion that was presented and you can only amend 
it insofar as it relates to classifications which have been referred 
to the Civil Service Commission. If you move to amend the Salary 
Standardization Ordinance schedule as to any new classification to 
which an amendment has not already been proposed, it must go down 
to the Civil Service Commission and could not be now considered 
and could not be considered as a part of this motion. The Charter 
is sweeping in requiring that every amendment be submitted to the 
Civil Service Commission and be reported back. 

Supervisor MacPhee: Assuming that the Board approves the 
motion of Supervisor Lewis as made, would it not make the entire 
Salary Standardization Ordinance illegal and thus prevent the people 
entitled to raises, from getting them? 

Mr. Peddicord: If such a motion were made, the only thing the 
Board could do would be to refer it to the Civil Service Commission. 

The President ruled Supervisor Gallagher's point of order well 
taken and that the foregoing motion was out of order because no 
data had heretofore been sent to the Civil Service Commission on the 
position in question. 

B30, Supervisor, Utilities Audits — proposed increase $800 to $1,000. 
Supervisor Lewis withdrew his motion. 



170 MONDAY, MARCH 7, 1949 

B54, Director, Bureau of Public Service — proposed rate of $750. 
Motion seconded by Supervisor Mead, and lost by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Lewis, McMurray, Mead — 3. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 8. 

B68, Chief Clerk— proposed range $400-480. Motion seconded by 
Supervisor McMurray and lost by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Lewis, McMurray, Mead, John J. Sullivan — 4. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, J. Joseph Sullivan — 7. 

B84, Under Sheriff — proposed range $650-775. Motion seconded by 
Supervisor Mead and lost by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Lewis, McMurray, Mead — 3. 

Noes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 8. 

B88, Chief Assistant Clerk, Board of Supervisors — proposed range 
$510-600. Before the motion was seconded, the President ruled the 
motion out of order because such position, with supporting data, had 
not heretofore been referred to the Civil Service Commission. 

B90, Clerk of Board of Supervisors — Before a proposed range could 
be announced, the President stated that this position likewise had 
not been sent to the Civil Service Commission, with supporting data, 
and therefore could not be considered by the Board at this time.

Department. 

Opinion of Deputy City Attorney. 

Mr. Walker Peddicord, Deputy City Attorney, stated that the origi- 
nal resolution authorizing the execution of the lease by the Mayor

that in view of possible litigation, it would be better if the Board 
authorized the cancellation of the lease since it was a signatory 
party to it in the first instance.

ion to the effect that the Board had no jurisdiction in the matter,

Procedure Questioned by Supervisor Mead. 

Supervisor Mead questioned the present procedure whereby bond 
bids are received in the morning and referred to the Controller's 
office for computation, whereas the former prevailing practice saw 
the Clerk of the Board receiving the bids during the meeting of the 
Board of Supervisors and at the designated hour, bids were opened, 
contents read and then referred to the Controller's office for com- 
putation. 

The Clerk attempted to explain that the former practice did not 
allow the Controller's office sufficient time to properly compute the 
bids received and that the present practice had already been in effect 
for the past two years. 

The President inquired of Mr. Peddicord, Deputy City Attorney, 
as a condition precedent, should the subject matter be referred to 
committee, whereupon Mr. Peddicord replied that present procedure 
calls for reference of all matters to committee. 

Referred to Finance Committee.

204 MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1949 

Request of Supervisor Lewis. 

Supervisor Lewis requested that the Clerk direct a communication 
to both the Attorney-General of the State of California and to the 
City Attorney of the City and County of San Francisco, propounding 
certain questions in connection with delegation of authority over 
approaches to crossings over San Francisco Bay, the formation of a 
new bridge district and the power of that district with respect to 
crossings over the bay. 

No objection and so ordered. It was understood, however, that this 
communication was being sent by Supervisor Lewis personally and 
did not reflect the thoughts of the Board. 

Reference to Committee. 

Memorializing the State Legislature to Amend Act 956, California Toll 
Bridge Authority Act, by Deleting From the Membership Thereof, 
the Director of the State Department of Public Works. 

Supervisor Lewis presented: 

File No. 3940, Resolution No (Series of 1939). 

Referred to County, State and National Affairs Committee. 

Consideration and Adoption of Measure Opposing the Construction of 
a So- Called Parallel Crossing Over San Francisco Bay. 

Supervisor Lewis presented a measure calling upon the proper com- 
mittee in the State Legislature to consider a second bay crossing. 

The President of the Board inquired of Supervisor Lewis why he 
hadn't mentioned a southern crossing in the proposed measure, to 
which Supervisor Lewis replied that in telephonic conversation with 
the Legislative Representative in Sacramento, it was deemed inadvis- 
able to make mention of a southern crossing. 

General discussion ensued among the Supervisors with respect to 
the advisability of making specific mention of a southern crossing in 
the proposed measure. 

The President suggested to Supervisor Lewis that he offer a motion 
that the Legislative Representative consult with the Senators and 
Assemblymen and to take such action as will protect the City's 
interests. 

At this juncture, Supervisor Lewis presented another measure 
authorizing and directing the Legislative Representative to present 
appropriately to the State Legislature in its present session for con- 
sideration, the matter of a location of a second crossing over San 
Francisco Bay. 

Substitute. 

Supervisor Christopher offered as a substitute a measure that would 
protest to the State Legislature the contemplated construction of a 
parallel crossing over San Francisco Bay and that the aid of such 
legislative body be solicited looking to the construction of a southern 
crossing. Supervisor Lewis, however, objected to such a substitute. 

Supervisor Mead ventured the opinion that the measure proposed 
by Supervisor Christopher possessed more teeth than the one pre- 
sented by Supervisor Lewis. 

IS-Miaute Recess. 

Supervisor Fazackerley moved a fifteen-minute recess. At this 
juncture, Supervisor Mancuso objected to the recess and asked to be 
excused from further attendance. 



MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1949 205 

Supervisor Mancuso Excused. 

Accordingly, Supervisor Mead moved, seconded by Supervisor 
Lewis, that Supervisor Mancuso be excused. 

No objection, motion carried, and Supervisor Mancuso excused at 
4:50 p. m. 

Presentation of Measure — Recess. 

Supervisor Lewis suggested another measure which would author- 
ize and direct the Legislative Representative of San Francisco to 
present appropriately to the State Legislature in its present session 
for the purpose of favorable consideration, legislation which would 
control and direct that the approaches to another crossing over San 
Francisco Bay be located in the vicinity of the approaches now 
designed for the crossing known as the southern crossing. 

Recess Until 5:00 P.M. 

Supervisor Fazackerley moved a recess until 5:00 p. m. Motion 
duly seconded and there being no objection, motion carried. 

Amended Measure. 

Upon reconvening from recess. Supervisor Lewis presented an 
amended measure to read as follows: 

File No. 3941, Resolution No. 8466 (Series of 1939) . 

"Resolved, That the Board of Supervisors of the City and County 
of San Francisco does hereby authorize and direct the Legislative 
Representative of San Francisco to present appropriately to the State 
Legislature in its present session, the passage of legislation opposing 
the construction of a so-called parallel crossing over San Francisco 
Bay. 

"Further Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted 
immediately to his Honor the Mayor, for transmittal to the Legis- 
lative Representative." 

Supervisor Lewis moved the suspension of the rules for the pur- 
pose of considering the foregoing measure. Motion seconded by Super- 
visor Mead. No objection and motion carried. 

Adopted. 

The roll was then called on the adoption of the measure and it was 
adopted by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Halley, Lewis, Mac- 
Phee, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan — 8. ' ■ 

Absent: Supervisors Gallagher, Mancuso, John J. Sullivan— 3. 

Request. 

Supervisor Lewis requested that in the consideration of the 1949- 
1950 budget, funds be earmarked for the purpose of conducting a 
campaign looking to the formation of a new bridge district that would 
insure the construction of a southern crossing, and in event funds for 
such purpose are provided, those counties affected by such a crossing 
be contacted and urged to provide funds in their respective budgets 
for similar campaigns. 

Referred to Finance Committee. 

Adopted. 

Requesting Mayor to Proclaim April 24th as "Angel Island Day."

File No. 3956, Resolution No (Series of 1939). 

Queries. 

Supervisor Fazackerley inquired of Mr. Walker Peddicord, Deputy 
City Attorney, as to the legality of procedure outlined in the pro- 
posed measure, to which Mr. Peddicord replied that as to form the 
measure was proper and that Section 93 of the Charter covered the 
procedure with respect to the leasing of property, further stating 
that he could not see how he could make an official comment at this 
time without first looking into the subject at some length. 

The President of the Board, Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan, inquired 
of Mr. Thomas Brooks, Chief Administrative Officer, as to the posi- 
tion of the City should it call for bids as contemplated by the meas- 
ure before the Board, to which Mr. Brooks replied that he thought 
the plan outlined was somewhat irregular. 

To a query from the President of the Board as to whether the sub- 
ject matter is properly before the Board, Mr. Peddicord replied that 
it was. 

Explanation of Vote. 

Supervisor Christopher stated that he had no objection to casting 
a favorable vote but wanted it understood that he was doing so 
merely for the purpose of clarification and for the purpose of obtain- 
ing information in order to determine whether it would be sound 
business for the city to purchase the island. 

The President of the Board expressed the view that the procedure 
as proposed by the measure was irregular and that by such method, 
the charter provisions were being circumvented in that bids were 
being called on property not under the control of the city. 

Amendment. 

Supervisor Christopher moved, seconded by Supervisor Gallagher, 
that File No. 3956 be amended by adding thereto the following: 

"Further Resolved, That the purpose of receiving such bids is solely 
for the purpose of determining the practicability and economic feasi- 
bility of purchasing the island, and does not bind in any way the 



MONDAY, APRIL 4, 1949 241 

City and County of San Francisco to either consummate the purchase 
or to complete any lease arrangement." 

Request of Supervisor Mancuso. 

Supervisor Mancuso requested that a bond issue be submitted to 
the electorate at the November election for the purchase of Angel 
Island and that the Mayor in the meantime secure from the War 
Assets Administration an extension of time to include the period 
beyond the election date witliin which to determine whether it would 
be practicable to purchase the island. 

No action taken. 

Consideration Continued. 

Supervisor Mancuso moved, seconded by Supervisor Fazackerley, 
that consideration of File No. 3956 and amendment thereto, be con- 
tinued for a period of one week, and that the Clerk address a com- 
munication to the City Attorney, requesting a written opinion as to 
the legal rights of the Board to have bids called for by the Director 
of Property and the legal rights and liabilities of the City should File 
No. 3956 be adopted and firm bids received. 

Amendment to Motion — Lost. 

Supervisor John J. Sullivan moved that the Board request a break- 
down of the cost required for rehabilitating and maintaining Angel 
Island, from the Chief Administrative Officer.

by the City and County of San Francisco From the United States 
of America Prior to Such Acquisition, Said Lease to Be Conditioned 
Upon Subsequent Purchase of the Real Property by the City From the 
United States. 

File No. 4059, Ordinance No (Series of 1939). 

Statement by Supervisor Halley. 

Supervisor Halley stated that when the committee held a hearing 
on the subject-matter, it was brouglit out that an organization known 
as Holiday Island, Inc., had displayed an interest in leasing the island 
and had agreed, as stated in the file, to put up a good faith bond in 
the sum of $350,000 and that he was led to believe that the solvency 
of the company was guaranteed. 

At this juncture. Supervisor Halley requested permission to ask 
Mr. George, the General Manager of the Company, several questions 
as to whether or not the company which he represented was actually 
incorporated under the laws of the State of California or of any 
state, to which Mr. George replied that his firm was not incorporated 
in the actual sense of the word. 

At the conclusion of his questioning, Supervisor Halley stated that 
he was satisfied that a huge risk was involved, and accordingly he 
would vote to table both the proposed resolution and ordinance. 

Request of Supervisor Mancuso. 

Supervisor Mancuso, at this point, requested that a bond issue be 
submitted at the November election in the sum of $1,200,000, which 
would cover the purchase price and maintenance of the island. 

No action taken. 

John Brucato Queried. 

Supervisor Christopher requested permission to interrogate John 
Brucato, chairman of the Citizens' Committee for the Purchase of 
Angel Island, to which Supervisor Halley objected by rising to a 
point of order. 

The President ruled the point of order not well taken as he believed 
Supervisor Christopher had the right to ask any question he so 
desired. 

Point of Order. 

Supervisor Gallagher rose to a point of order, contending that based 
on past experience in the Board, the matter before it at the present 
time was the determination as to whether or not the Board had the 
right to consider a proposed ordinance on the date of its introduction. 

The President ruled the point of order not well taken, contending 
that the proposed measure is properly before the Board. 



250 MONDAY, APRIL 11, 1949 

Point of Personal Privilege. 

Supervisor Gallagher rose to a point of personal privilege, contend- 
ing that during his tenure in office he has yet to renriember one in- 
stance where an ordinance was passed for second reading on the date 
of its introduction. The Supervisor stated that he did not intend to 
appeal from the decision of the President but felt that the President's 
ruling was in error insofar as the Charter and the Board's legislative 
procedure ordinance were concerned, as a public hearing had not been 
held on the proposed ordinance. 

Suspension of Rules. 

Supervisor Mancuso moved the suspension of the rules for the pur- 
pose of hearing from Mr. John G. Brucato. Motion seconded by 
Supervisor Halley. 

No objection and motion carried. 

Mr. Brucato spoke on the necessity of taking prompt action in 
determining whether or not the city should acquire the island as he 
felt that the War Assets Administration would not continue to grant 
extensions. Further, that 190 civic, labor and fraternal organizations 
had gone on record as favoring the purchase of the island. 

Motion to Defer Consideration. 

Supervisor Gallagher moved, seconded by Supervisor Halley, that 
consideration of the subject-matter be deferred for a period of one 
week, that the proper committee hold a hearing on the matter and 
that it be remanded to -Board in time for consideration on April 18 
as a Special Order at 3:00 p. m., sitting in committee of the whole. 

Request of Supervisor Gallagher. 

Supervisor Gallagher requested that the City Attorney render a 
written opinion as to the possible effect on the proposed measure 
dealing with the leasing of real property, prior to its acquisition, were 
the words "Angel Island" inserted in such measure. 

No action taken. 

Statement by Deputy City Attorney. 

Deputy City Attorney Walker Peddicord advised that the proposed 
measure before the Board provides a general procedure for the pur- 
chase of real property so that if the Board is disposed to act upon the 
purchase of Angel Island or any other piece of real property, the pro- 
cedure outlined in the proposed measure would be the one to follow. 

Question by Supervisor Fazackerley. 

Supervisor Fazackerley inquired of Mr. Peddicord if the passage 
of the proposed resolution and proposed ordinance left the final deter- 
mination of the award of contract in the hands of the Board, to which 
Mr. Peddicord replied that the Board had the power of final deter- 
mination. 

Opposition to Motion. 

Supervisor Christopher spoke in opposition to the motion to defer 
action for one week, contending that the time to sit in committee of 
the whole would beat tlie time the bids are received; that all the 
Board is doing at the present time is seeking information; further, 
that he was not sure that the purchase of the island would be a good 
thing for San Francisco, and that he saw no objection to receiving 
bids for the purpose of determining the practicability and economic 
feasibility of purchasing the island and that such action does not 
bind the city to either consummation of the puixhase of the island or 
the completion of any lease arrangement. 



MONDAY, APRIL 11, 1949 251 

Suggestion of President. 

The President suggested that the motion be amended to provide for 
deletion of reference to "committee of the whole." 

Accordingly, Supervisor Gallagher moved, seconded by Supervisor 
Halley, that reference in his motion to "committee of the whole" be 
deleted. 

No objection and so ordered.

Authorizing Attendance of City Librarian and Three Members of 
Library Staff, at Meeting of the California Library Association, Held 
at Paradise Park, Calistoga, California, March 18-19, 1949. 

File No. 4053, Resolution No (Series of 1939). 

Discussion. 

It developed that since authorization of attendance of the City 
Librarian and three members of his staff involved a meeting that had 
already been held, it was incumbent upon the Board to enact an 
ordinance instead of a resolution. Accordingly, Supervisor Gallagher, 
Chairman of the Finance Committee, moved the following substitute 
in lieu of the measure appearing on the Calendar. Motion seconded 
by Supervisor MacPhee. No objection and motion carried. 



MONDAY, APRIL 18, 1949 267 

Authorizing Attendance of City Librarian and Three Members of 
Library Staff, at Meeting of the California Library Association, Held 
in Paradise Park, Calistoga, California, March 18-19, 1949. 

File No. 4053, Ordinance No (Series of 1939). 

There was some discussion in connection with the consideration 
of this type of legislation in which permission is being sought for 
authorized attendance at a meeting already held, and Supervisor 
Halley made the very definite statement that this would be the last 
time that he would vote for a measure of this character. 

Thereupon the roll was called and the substitute measure, File No. 
4053, was Passed for Second Reading by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J, 
Sullivan — 10. 

Absent: Supervisor Lewis — 1. 

Adopted. 

Authorizing Attendance of One Civil Service Commissioner and Four 
Members of the Civil Service Staff, at Annual Meeting of the Western 
Regional Conference of the Civil Service Assembly of the United 
States and Canada, to Be Held in Yosemite National Park, May 
22-24, 1949. 

File No. 4054, Resolution No. 8567 (Series of 1939). 
Motion to Delete — No Second. 

Supervisor Christopher moved that File No. 4054 be amended by 
deleting therefrom "Four members of the Civil Service staff." 

Explanation. 

Supervisor Christopher hastened to explain that he had been a 
member of the Board of Supervisors for three years; that he had not 
taken one cent of expenses, nor did he intend doing so; that he was 
against the policy of city officials and employees taking trips all over 
the country at the taxpayers' expense, and that the subject trip was 
nothing more than a junket. 

Motion lost for want of a second. 

Thereupon the roll was called and File No. 4054 was adopted by 
the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, MacPhee, Man- 
cuso, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 9.

Appropriating $250,000, Park Department, for Purchase of Land on 
Frederick Street Between Willard and Stanyan Streets, Required for 
Kezar Stadium Extension. 

File No. 4011, Ordinance No (Series of 1939). 

Inquiry by the President. 

The President inquired of the Chairman of the Finance Committee, 
Supervisor Gallagher, if the foregoing measure had been referred to 
the City Planning Commission for report as to conformity with the 
Master Plan, to which Supervisor Gallagher replied that so far as the 
Board's records reveal, it had not. 

Question was asked of Mr. Walker Peddicord, Deputy City Attor- 
ney, if such a measure should properly be referred to the City Plan- 
ning Commission for report before action by the Board, to which 
Mr. Peddicord replied that if the project had not been ruled upon 
earlier by the City Planning Commission, it must first be referred to 
that body for report before action by the Board. 

Accordingly, Supervisor MacPhee moved, seconded by Supervisor 
Fazackerley, that File No. 4011 be referred to the City Planning Com- 
mission for report. 

No objection and motion carried. 

At this point, Supervisor Gallagher was handed a copy of a com- 
munication from the City Planning Commission addressed to the Real 
Estate Department, wliich contained information to the effect that 
the proposed purchase of land required for the extension of Kezar 
Stadium was in conformity with the Master Plan, whereupon Super- 
visor Gallagher moved, seconded by Supervisor Mead, that the Board 
rescind its action whereby the Board had referred the subject measure 
to the City Planning Commission for report. 

No objection and motion carried. 

Discussion. 

Supervisor Gallagher asked Mr. Riordan, Director of Property, 
whether the appropriation of $250,000 now being requested would 
purchase all the land to be required for which purpose an original 
appropriation of $110,000 was requested some two years ago, and Mr. 
Riordan replied it would not. 

Mr. Riordan stated that he had been requested by the Park Com- 
mission to make an appraisal of the entire block from Willard to 
Stanyan, on Frederick. The appraisal was $375,000. The Park Depart- 
ment has a land reserve fund built up by sale of city properties and 
it now totals $250,000. They are asking that this amount be applied 
toward the purchase of the entire block starting at Willard Street. 
The Real Estate Department will acquire all of the frame buildings, 
and has made an appraisal of the entire block; $250,000 will probably 



MONDAY, APRIL 18, 1949 269 

take care of two apartment buildings and three separate flats, but 
will not be sufficient for the entire block. 

To a query as to the actual amount of property that could be pur- 
chased for $250,000, Mr. Riordan stated that he could not say defi- 
nitely just how much could be purchased, but that efforts were being 
made to purchase the entire block, and that the appropriation re- 
quested was earmarked for parking purposes, thus facilitating ingress 
to and egress from Kezar Stadium, and is not to be used for the 
extension of the seating capacity of the Stadium. 

Statement by President of the Board. 

The President of the Board stated that if the Park Commission had 
plans designed for Kezar Stadium Extension he had not been apprised 
of them; further, that parking space could be provided some blocks 
from the Stadium; that parking areas might well be established more 
to the west, and that until such time as he has seen definite plans 
looking to the extension of Kezar Stadium, he must vote "No" on the 
appropriation requested. 

Consideration Continued. 

Supervisor Gallagher at this point moved that the matter be con- 
tinued for a period of one week. Motion seconded by Supervisor 
MacPhee. 

Request for Park Commission Attendance. 

Supervisor Gallagher requested that the Park Commission attend 
the next meeting of the Board when it again considers the subject 
matter. 

No objection and so ordered. 

Explanation of Vote by President of the Board J. Joseph Sullivan. 

The President of the Board, in explaining his position, stated that 
he was not disparaging the motives of any member of the Park Com- 
mission; however, he was disagreeing with them in the matter of the 
exercise of judgment. The Park Commission should not go into the 
land purchase program until such plans as they might have for 
expansion have been prepared and presented to the Board for exam- 
ination; and that until such time as this opportunity has been accorded 
him, he will vote against the measure. 

Whereupon the roll was called on the motion to continue considera- 
tion and it carried by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, McMurray, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sulli- 
van — 9.

Requesting the Director of Property to Call for Bids for the Leasing 
of Angel Island and to Have Such Bids Available for Consideration 
by the Board Prior to May 15, 1949. 

File No. 3956, Resolution No (Series of 1939) . 

Proposed amendment made in Board on April 4, 1949: 

Supervisor Christopher moved the following: 

"Further Resolved, That the purpose of receiving such bids is 
solely for the purpose of determining the practicability and economic 
feasibility of purchasing the island and does not bind, in any way, the 
City and County of San Francisco, to either consummate the purchase 
or to complete any lease arrangement." 

Motion seconded by Supervisor Gallagher. 

April 11, 1949 — Consideration continued to April 18, 1949. 

Authorizing and Providing for the Leasing of Real Property to Be 
Acquired by the City and County From the United States of America 
Prior to Such Acquisition, Said Lease to Be Conditioned Upon 
Subsequent Acquisition of the Real Property by the City From the 
United States. 

File No. 4059, Ordinance No (Series of 1939) . 

April 11, 1949 — Consideration continued to April 18, 1949. 

Statement by Walker Peddicord, Deputy City Attorney. 

Mr. Peddicord stated that the proposed ordinance which authorizes 
and provides for the leasing of real property to be acquired by the 
City from the United States Government prior to such acquisition, 
should be first finally passed and signed by the Mayor before the 
Board acts on File No. 3956, which requests the Director of Property 
to call for bids for the leasing of Angel Island. 

To a further query on the procedure involved, Mr. Peddicord stated 
that he saw no harm in adopting File No. 3956 before the ordinance 
mentioned above was signed by the Mayor, but that in view of the 
circumstances involved, it would be advisable to first have the ordi- 
nance approved before action is taken on the measure calling for 
bids. 

Supervisor MacPhee, at this point, inquired as to the effect of Board 
action should the Board adopt the proposal calling for bids, then call 
for bids, receive three of them, one of which is accepted, before the 
Mayor has signed the measure which provides for the leasing of 
property to be acquired by the City from the United States Govern- 
ment prior to such acquisition. 

To this query, Mr. Peddicord replied that in that event the legality 
of the entire procedure would be in doubt. 



MONDAY, APRIL 18, 1949 271 

Supervisor Mead then raised the point as to whether the subject 
measure, File No. 4059, could not be passed as an emergency measure, 
to which Mr. Peddicord replied that he could not possibly conceive 
the measure as being of an emergency nature. 

Committee of the Whole. 

Supervisor Gallagher moved, seconded by Supervisor Halley, that 
the Board resolve itself into a Committee of the Whole. 

No objection and motion carried. 

Supervisor Mead moved that the President of the Board serve as 
Chairman of the Committee of the Whole. Motion seconded by Super- 
visor McMurray. 

No objection and motion ca7-ried. 

Discussion. 

Supervisor Fazackerley brought up the question of time required 
by the Chief Administrative Officer in connection with the calling of 
bids, to which Mr. Brooks replied that his department must have at 
least sixty days, preferably 90 days, and that the time mentioned in 
File No. 3956 wherein bids must be received and made ready for 
Board consideration by May 15 was out of the question. 

Privilege of the Floor. 

The privilege of the floor was accorded to the following: 

Mr. John G. Brucato, Chairman of the Citizens' Committee for the 
Purchase of Angel Island. 

Mr. Brucato spoke briefly, outlining some of the proposed improve- 
ments contemplated by Holiday Island, Inc., in event that that flrm's 
bid for leasing the island is accepted. Mr. Brucato then requested 
that the privilege of the floor be extended to several representatives 
of travel agencies, air, bus and train companies who had expressed 
a desire to speak on the subject. 

To a query whether Angel Island would be taxable by Marin 
County, if acquired by the City and County of San Francisco, Mr. 
Peddicord replied that his office had rendered an opinion and that 
the answer is "No"; that Article 15, Section 1, of the State Constitu- 
tion provided that property not subject to taxation at the time of 
acquisition would not become subject to taxation when acquired. 

Privilege of the Floor — Continued. 

Gelston Judah, representing the Judah Travel Agency. 

Mr. A. P. Hardy, District Passenger Agent, Southern Pacific Com- 
pany. 

Mr. John F. Shelley, representing the San Francisco Labor Council. 
He stated that while his organization has not as yet taken an official 
position in the matter, he had received endorsements from several of 
his unions. 

Mr. Frank Bai'rough of the American Air Lines. 

Mr. J. B. Lane, District Passenger Agent, Continental Bus System. 

Mr. Albert E. Elliott, President of Harbor Tours, Inc. 

All of the above gentlemen spoke briefly, commenting on the 
amount of business that would accrue to their respective firms as 
well as to the City and County of San Francisco, should the City 
acquire the island. These gentlemen were unanimously of the opinion 
that such a purchase by the city would be a profitable one for every- 
one concerned and urged that the Board take such action as would 
hasten the purchase of the island.

Memorializing the President and the Congress of the United States to 
Take Whatever Action Is Necessary to the End That the Italian 
' Colonies May Be Returned to Italy. 

File No. 4083, Resolution No (Series of 1939). 

Explanations of Votes. 

The President of the Board requested Supervisor McMurray to 
take the Chair so that he could explain his stand on the subject. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan: It is about time that the Board 
ceases to consider itself as an authority on international matters. 
In the past we did so without knowledge of all the facts. I dare say 
that there is no one here who can name the Italian colonies involved. 
It is very easy to say "Let's vote for the matter and get rid of it." 
I know the Secretaries of State and Defense have problems enough 
without complicating the situation with more. I am familiar with 
the Italian people, but with a complete lack of authority on the sub- 
ject, I have no alternative but to vote "No." 

Supervisor Mead: I have thousands of friends among the Italian 
people. In fact, my wife is Italian but I cannot, in all conscience, 
vote for something of which I know nothing. Maybe this is the time 
to procure some information. I appreciate the fact that my stand 
and that of Supervisor Sullivan's are very unpopular, but nevertheless 
we are asked to vote for something of which we know nothing. 
Unless Supervisor Mancuso, who I understand is of Italian origin, 
is in a position to give us information by which we can vote intelli- 
gently, I am afraid that I shall be forced to take the same position 
as Supervisor Sullivan's. 

Supervisor Mancuso explained that during the latter part of 1943 
efforts were made to have the Mayor and distinguished citizens of 
Italian extraction in New York City and San Francisco, speak via 
short wave to the Italian people, urging them to surrender and if such 
was done, every consideration would be shown them with respect 
to returning their lost colonies. This was done. The surrender was 
effected and thus many thousands of American lives were saved, and 
therefore there was a moral obligation on the part of America. 



MONDAY, APRIL 18, 1949 275 

Supervisor Mancuso continued by stating that the Committee felt 
an opinion of the City Attorney was necessary to clarify the matter. 
This opinion has been rendered, favoring action on the part of the 
Board in seeking the I'eturn of the Italian colonies. 

Supervisor MacPhee: I am not satisfied that this is a matter for 
the Board of Supervisors to consider. The proper procedure would be 
for the Mayor's office who handled this matter in the first instance 
to handle it. It seems that the Board of Supervisors is going further 
and further astray in memorializing the Federal Government and 
other agencies. I have no objection to these persons signing a tele- 
gram requesting such action. However, I do not feel this is a proper 
action of the Board of Supervisors notwithstanding the opinion from 
the City Attorney. By passing this resolution we are merely build- 
ing precedent upon precedent. I will be glad to sign a telegram as an 
individual but not as a member of the Board of Supervisors. 

Supervisor Fazackerley: I intend to support the resolution because 
I have received news from an authoritative source, namely the City 
Attorney's opinion. 

Supervisor John J. Sullivan: I am anxious to find out from the 
boys in the American Legion, the V.F.W., how they feel about it, but 
today I must vote against it. 

Supervisor Mead: A resolution of this kind does not belong before 
the Board of Supervisors. Even though this resolution were to pass 
unanimously, it would mean nothing in Washington, D. C. Some 
people are making a political football of this issue for some ulterior 
motive. I do not propose to vote for something that is an idle ges- 
ture. Some public officials are cheapening themselves by bringing 
a matter of this type before the Board solely for selfish and political 
gains, and the record will show that Supervisor Mead does not vote 
for things of an international character. 

Supervisor Mancuso hastened to point out that Supervisor Mead 
voted for measures in the past involving assistance for the Chinese, 
the return of White Russians and the Palestine situation; further, 
that the City of New York had taken action urging the return of the 
Italian colonies; that the Federal Government had taken the initia- 
tive in requesting San Francisco to assist in every way possible 
through short-wave broadcasts so that Italy's surrender could be 
effected in the shortest possible time; that we had pledged to assist 
Italy should she surrender, and now it is our responsibility to redeem 
that pledge. 

Re-reference to Committee. 

Supervisor Christopher moved that File No. 4083 be re-referred to 
the County, State and National Affairs Committee. Motion seconded 
by Supervisor Fazackerley. 

Supervisor Mancuso spoke against re-reference, contending that 
nothing would be gained by such action. The subject matter is now 
before the United Nations and immediate action by this Board is 
imperative. 

Thereupon the roll was called and Supervisor Christopher's motion 
to re-refer File No. 4083 to Committee carried by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, MacPhee, McMurray, 
Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 7. 

Noes: Supervisors Gallagher, Halley, Mancuso — 3. 

Absent: Supervisor Lewis — 1. 

Announcement of Committee Meeting. 

Supervisor Fazackerley announced a meeting of the County, State 
and National Affairs Committee for Wednesday, April 20, 1949, at 
3:00 p.m.

up: 

Present: Supervisors Halley, McMurray.

Between Silliman and Felton Streets. 

File No. 4037, Ordinance No (Series of 1939) .

that consideration of File No. 4037 be continued for a period of two 
weeks. 

The roll was called and the foregoing motion lost by the following 
vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Mancuso, J. Joseph Sullivan — 3. 

Noes: Supervisors Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, MacPhee, Mc- 
Murray, Mead, John J. Sullivan — 7. 

Absent: Supervisor Lewis — 1. 

Privilege of the Floor. 

Supervisor Mancuso moved, seconded by Supervisor Mead, that the 
rules be suspended for the purpose of granting the privilege of the 
floor to Mr. Gilbert Null, representing Gregory Bros. 

Before Mr. Null spoke, Supervisor MacPhee made it known that 
while he had no objection to the privilege of the floor, he believed 
that this was a rather unusual request in view of the fact that all 
parties interested in any matter are heard in committee and not 
before the Board. 

Explanation of Vote. 

Supervisor Christopher stated that he was not ready to vote for 
the recommendation of the committee that the protests be sustained, 
and felt that consideration of the matter should be postponed for a 
period of two weeks so that additional information may be brought 
before the Board and thus afford him an opportunity to visit the 
premises. 

Consideration Continued. 

Whereupon Supervisor Halley moved, seconded by Supervisor John 
J. Sullivan, that consideration of File No. 4037 be continued for a 
period of two weeks. 

No objection and so ordered.

tion to Rezone Property Located on the West Side of Noe Street, 
Between Fifteenth and Beaver Streets, From Second Residential Dis- 
trict to Commercial District. 

File No. 4015. 

( 281) 



282 MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1949 

Privilege of the Floor, 

The privilege of the floor was extended to the following: 

Frank Merritt, attorney-at-law, representing the appellants and 
the improvement club in the district. 

Mr. Merritt claimed that the action of the City Planning Commis- 
sion was a clear case of "spot zoning" and tantamount to the grant- 
ing of a special favor. 

Mr. Paul Oppermann, Director of Planning, was compelled to call 
on Mr. McCarthy of his office for an explanation of the action of the 
City Planning Commission in connection with its approval of the 
rezoning application, Mr. Oppermann claiming that his recent appoint- 
ment to his job prevented him from being fully conversant with all 
of the facts involved. 

Mr. McCarthy of the City Planning Commission stated that the City 
Planning Commission, after reviewing all possible data, voted five 
to two for the rezoning. 

Mr. J. Hanley, attorney-at-law, representing the Chinese persons 
interested in purchasing the property, stated that there were but 
eight legitimate protestants on Noe Street, and that many persons 
were enjoying the advantage of commercial district zoning due to 
being under the protection of non-conforming use privileges. 

Explanation of Vote. 

Supervisor Lewis stated that he was going to vote to override the 
decision of the City Planning Commission. He recalled a ruling of 
the City Planning Commission, made some two years ago with re- 
spect to petition of a party on Lake Street, between Twenty-fourth 
and Twenty-fifth Avenues, who wanted to construct an apartment 
building and wanted a reclassification from first to second residential 
district. The City Planning flatly turned him down. 

To a query from Supervisor Mead as to the type of structure pro- 
posed to be constructed as a Chinese laundry, Mr. Hanley stated that 
the reconversion would cost in excess of $4,000 while the property 
itself is being purchased for $13,125. 

Mr. Thomas A. Brooks, Chief Administrative Officer, when called 
upon to explain why he, as a member of the City Planning Commis- 
sion, voted against permitting the reclassification, stated that he did 
not believe in disturbing residential areas; that in this particular case, 
a commercial location could have been obtained closer to Market 
Street, and that he was opposed to the principle of spot zoning. 

President of the Board, Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan, stated that 
for the first time he was voting against the City Planning Commission. 

The President accordingly then advised the Board as follows: 

A vote "Aye" overrides the City Planning Commission; a vote "No" 
sustains the Commission. 

The Clerk presented the following: 

Disapproving Decision of the City Planning Commission by Its Reso- 
lution No. 3562, Dated March 3, 1949, Rezoning Property Located on 
the West Side of Noe Street, Between Fifteenth and Beaver Streets, 
From Second Residential District to Commercial District. 

File No. 4015, Resolution No (Series of 1939). 

Thereupon the roll was called on File No. 4015 and the City Plan- 
ning Commission was sustained by the following vote: 

Ayes : Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Lewis, Mac- 
Phee, J. Joseph Sullivan — 5. 

Noes: Supervisors Halley, Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, John J. Sul- 
livan — 5. 

Absent: Supervisor Christopher — 1.

Frederick Street Between Willard and Stanyan Streets, Required for 
Kezar Stadium Extension. 

File No. 4011, Ordinance No (Series of 1939). 

(In conformity with Master Plan.) 

April 18, 1949 — Consideration continued to April 25, 1949. 

Communication. 

The Clerk read a communication from the San Francisco Municipal 
Conference urging Board delay in connection with an appropriation 
of $250,000 from Park Department surplus funds toward the purchase 
of additional land for Kezar Stadium extension. 

Motion to Postpone Two Weeks — Lost. 

At this juncture, Supervisor Fazackerley was requested by the 
President to assume the Chair so that he, the President, could have 
an opportunity of speaking on the matter. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan thereupon moved, seconded by 
Supervisor Mancuso, that consideration of the foregoing subject be 
continued for a period of two weeks. 

Motion lost by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Fazackerley, Lewis, MacPhee, Mancuso, J. Joseph 
Sullivan — 5. 

Noes: Supervisors Gallagher, Halley, McMurray, Mead, John J. 
Sullivan — 5. 

Absent: Supervisor Christopher — 1. 



284 MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1949 

Mr. Harvey E. Teller, President of Park Commission, Queried. 

Supervisor Gallagher asked Mr. Teller if the pending appropria- 
tion of $250,000 would purchase the same amount of land which 
would have been purchased by an appropriation of $110,000 which 
had been asked of the Board some two years ago, and defeated. 

Mr. Teller replied that the requested sum of $250,000 would take 
care of the first five parcels of land, and emphasized the fact that all 
talk with reference to parking area was purely secondary to plans 
of the Commission whose main object was to obtain the land for the 
purpose of enlarging Kezar Stadium and installing 7500 seats to meet 
the demand of the public. 

This demand was due in part to the large increase in population 
and the anticipated increase in population within the next few years. 

Supervisor Mancuso inquired of Mr. Teller why the Park Depart- 
ment had not decided to use the area in back of Kezar, and cut 
through to Seventh Avenue, thus utilizing that area for parking, and 
in this way keep the property now intended for purchase, on the tax 
rolls. 

Mr. Teller, in reply, stated that the Supervisor's suggestion could 
probably be carried out. Further, the Park Commission had received 
tentative estimates from competitive engineers in connection with 
adding 20 rows to the north side of Kezar Stadium, and figured at 
$40-45 per seat. It would be a cantilever type of structure. As con- 
ditions exist at the present time, the Park Department is actually 
using Willard Street and closing it to the use of the residents of the 
property in that area. The Park Department feels that the revenue 
accruing from the parking area would be in excess of the amount 
of taxes that normally is realized from the property. 

Supervisor Mancuso inquired of Mr. Teller if his Commission still 
entertained the idea of constructing a new stadium, larger than Kezar, 
to which Mr. Teller replied that such a question was a difficult one 
to answer in that there would be many obstacles to overcome and that 
the cost of such an undertaking would be tremendous. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan asked the number of rental units 
involved in the proposed purchase plans of the Park Commission, to 
which Mr. Hickey replied, through Mr. Teller, that two apartment 
buildings and several fiats were involved, including a unit used as a 
garage. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan asked the further question with 
respect to plans that the Park Commission may have dealing with the 
proposed enlargement of the stadium, to which Mr. Hickey re- 
plied that at the present time only preliminary sketches by com- 
petent engineers were available, and that the Commission did not feel 
justified in going further into the plan picture until authority had 
been received to purchase the property. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan asked as to the amount of revenue 
which may be anticipated were television rights granted, to which 
Mr. Coffman, Park Commissioner, replied that insofar as the '49's 
were concerned, the owner, Mr. Morabito, would not countenance 
the use of television, while the East-West Shrine Game is sold out 
well in advance of the contest, so television wouldn't affect the reve- 
nues of that particular game. 

Motion to Continue Consideration for Two Weeks — Carried. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan moved, seconded by Supervisor Man- 
cuso, that consideration of the foregoing matter be continued for a 
period of two weeks. 

Supervisor Sullivan, in making the foregoing motion, stated that 
in view of the facts presented today, it must be determined and 
developed whether Kezar Stadium will be actually enlarged. 



MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1949 285 



Statements. 



Supervisor Mead expressed the opinion that he believed the Park 
Commission knew exactly what it was doing, and that steps should 
be taken immediately to enlarge the stadium before the city's com- 
petitors across the bay and down the peninsula grabbed off more of 
the city's potential sport revenues; further, the present stadium should 
be able to serve the needs of the community for another ten or twelve 
years and that to construct a new stadium would involve an outlay 
of some three or four million dollars. 

Supervisor Mancuso stated that as a matter of courtesy, the San 
Francisco Municipal Conference, representing eight or ten organiza- 
tions, should be granted the courtesy of the extension it seeks, and 
that a two-weeks' delay would not affect the pending matter one way 
or the other. Supervisor Mancuso finished his statement with the 
remark that he believed the point raised by Supervisor J. Joseph 
Sullivan in connection with necessity of the Park Commission fur- 
nishing finished plans relating to the enlargement of Kezar Stadium, 
was timely and urged the Park Commission to give this suggestion 
every possible consideration. 

Mr. Teller informed the Board that as far as the Commission was 
concerned, they had no objection to the proposed delay, and that he 
would be glad to hear from the Municipal Conference. 

At this point. Supervisor Gallagher asked a question of a Mr. Wil- 
liams of the Municipal Conference as to his thoughts in the matter, 
to which Mr. Williams replied that he was not personally familiar 
with it, but that the Conference desired to collaborate with the Park 
Commission. 

Supervisor Lewis stated he agreed with the view expressed by 
Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan, and that nothing today has been 
brought before the Board in concrete form; that all agree that Kezar 
Stadium needs to be enlarged but as to how this is to be accomplished, 
has not been divulged in concrete form. Supervisor Lewis concluded 
his remarks by saying that he had just returned from the East and 
therefore was not familiar with the subject matter and would appre- 
ciate the extension also, so that he would have time to reflect on it. 

Thereupon the roll was called and the motion to postpone considera- 
tion for two weeks was carried by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Fazackerley, Halley, Lewis, MacPhee, Mancuso, 
McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 9. 

No: Supervisor Gallagher — 1. 

Absent: Supervisor Christopher — 1. 

Consideration continued for two weeks. 

Passage for Second Reading. 

Supervisor Gallagher moved, seconded by Supervisor MacPhee, 
that the following measure be considered out of order. 
No objection and motion carried. 

From the Finance Committee without recommendation. 
Present: Supervisors Gallagher, Fazackerley, MacPhee. 

Appropriating $131,000, Recreation Department, From Unappropriated 
Balance of 1947 Recreation Bond Fund, for Expenditures and Certifica- 
tion of Contracts in Connection With Development and Improvement 
of the Corona Heights Area and Playground. 

File No. 4112, Ordinance No (Series of 1939). 

Motion "Do Pass." 

Supervisor Gallagher moved, seconded by Supervisor J. Joseph 
Sullivan, that the foregoing measure "do pass." 



286 MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1949 

Explanation of Vote. 

Supervisor Fazackerley: It is my best judgment that while the 
Junior Museum and recreational lacilities are properly part of a bond 
issue program, the people having voted for them; in view of the fact 
that approximately $800,000 of everybody's money is involved; in 
view of the fact that the project is of city-wide nature; in view of 
the fact that Corona Heights, while attractive in many respects, has 
no view, and other elements, such as being little known, and vir- 
tually inaccessible by mass transportation. These are taken from 
statistics compiled by the Public Utilities Commission. I am sold in 
support of the Buena Vista Park location. Four different lines oper- 
ating with a frequency of a one-minute headway are available for 
that location. In Buena Vista Park we do have a serious problem. 
It is not developed as a park for use by the public. Many people 
believe that Buena Vista Park does have a serious police problem. 
The Chief of Police at the last meeting of the Finance Committee 
agreed that that was the situation. I spoke to the members of the 
Park Commission who agreed to review the question of transferring 
Buena Vista Park to the Recreation Commission. The reaction I got 
is extremely favorable. They have no funds to develop that 20-acre 
area. We are faced with two sites, two blocks from each other. One 
easily accessible, the other, not. I would like to have the opportunity 
of having the matter brought before the Park Commission for relin- 
quishing Buena Vista Park to the Recreation Department for develop- 
ment of this area. I am requesting a delay of two weeks. 

Privilege of the Floor. 

The privilege of the floor was accorded to Mr. Louis Sutter, Presi- 
dent of the Recreation Commission, who stated that his Commission 
was not in favor of having a playground located on a busy thorough- 
fare, and therefore, he was in favor of the Corona Heights project. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan stated that in view of the fact that 
the people voted for the bonds and that the Recreation Commission 
issued a pamphlet on which was listed the Corona Heights Projects 
with its attendant cost of $131,000, he was going to vote for it. 

Change of Vote. 

Supervisor Fazackerley, after listening to the foregoing discussion, 
advised the Board that apparently he had no support for his Buena 
Vista Project and therefore he was abandoning it and would vote for 
the Corona Heights Project. 

Thereupon the roll was called and File No. 4112 was Passed for 
Second Reading by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, Lewis, Mancuso, 
McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan, John J. Sullivan — 9. 

No: Supervisor MacPhee — 1. 

Absent: Supervisor Christopher — 1. 

SPECIAL ORDER— 3:00 P.M. 

Public Hearing on Budget Estimates for the Fiscal Year 1949-1950, as 
Submitted to the Board of Supervisors by His Honor the Mayor. 

In connection with the above, the President inquired of the assem- 
blage if there were persons interested in speaking on the proposed 
1949-1950 budget. 

Privilege of the Floor. 

The privilege of the floor was granted to the following persons rep- 
resenting organizations: 

Mr. Raymond D. Smith, Executive Secretary, San Francisco Real 
Estate Board. 



MONDAY, APRIL 25, 1949 287 

Mr. Smith stated that his organization represented a large segment 
of the tax-paying public and asked that the Board be as economical 
as is consistent with progress and the ability of the city to keep 
abreast of other communities in the United States, and that in cases 
where new employments are sought, to scrutinize carefully each such 
request. 

Mr. Kenneth Evers, Real Estate Association of San Francisco. 

Mr. Evers urged every possible economy as well as investigation by 
the Board into additional sources of revenue. 

Mr. Elmore Johnson, Building Owners and Managers Association 
of San Francisco, expressed the hope that careful, deliberate study 
will be given the budget, with the view of cutting it wherever pos- 
sible, as taxes have risen to astronomical figures. 

Mr. Carroll Newburgh, Owners and Lessees Apartment House Asso- 
ciation and several other property owner groups, believed the Board 
should take into consideration the picture that existed last year and 
one that exists at the present time. Last year properties were sold 
for profit; this year they are being sold due to leveling off of business 
conditions, while federal, state and city and county taxes are going 
above their heads. 

At the conclusion of Mr. Newburgh's remarks, and there being no 
other person evincing a desire to speak on the proposed budget, 
Supervisor Gallagher, Chairman of the Finance Committee, announced 
that the Finance Committee would hold hearings on the proposed 
budget starting at 7:00 p. m., Tuesday evening and would also meet 
on Wednesday at 7: 00 p. m. 

Presentation of Distinguished Guests. 

His Honor, Mayor Elmer E. Robinson, introduced to the President 
of the Board and to the members of the Board, the Hon. Sean Mac- 
Bride, Minister of External Affairs for the Government of Ireland, 
and the Hon. Sean Noonan, Minister from Ireland to the United States. 

The Hon. MacBride expressed deep gratification at the welcome 
accorded him and of the opportunity of coming to the United States. 
He spoke of the time when he visited with President Truman and 
the President asked him if he had ever been out West, to which the 
Minister replied that he had not. In that event, the President assured 
him that he had not seen the United States at all. However, the 
Minister gave the President every assurance that upon his next trip 
to this country he would certainly go out West. The Hon. MacBride 
concluded his short speech by stressing the importance of continued 
friendship between this country and the Republic of Ireland. 

The Hon. Sean Noonan told the Board that he wasn't exactly a 
stranger to this country, having come here some 30 years ago, and 
that all he was asking was that efforts be made by those of Irish 
extraction here that will tend to assure the lasting unity of Ireland. 

Assessment Confirmed. 

Hearing of Protests — Improvement of Quintara Street Between Thirty- 
eighth Avenue (e/1) and Thirty-ninth Avenue.

306 MONDAY, MAY 2, 1949 

Passage for Second Reading. 

(Supervisor MacPhce dissenting.) 

Designating the Public Welfare Department as the County Agency to 
Be Licensed by the State Department of Social Welfare in Connec- 
tion With Adoption Matters. 

File No. 4113, Ordinance No (Series of 1939). 

April 25, 1949 — Consideration continued to May 2, 1949. 

Explanation of Vote. 

Supervisor J. Joseph Sullivan stated that some six months ago he 
introduced a measure calling for administration of adoption matters 
by the Juvenile Court and that his measure was predicated on some 
twenty years' experience with the department; however, he had been 
deluged by letters from persons who possessed greater experience 
than he in the matter of judging qualifications of agencies qualified 
to handle adoption matters and therefore he had come to the conclu- 
sion that it would be proper for him to accept the recommendation 
of the Finance Committee that such matters should be handled by 
the Public Welfare Department; however, he warned that he would 
scrutinize the actions of the Welfare Department closely. 

Supervisor Christopher expressed amazement that the subject- 
matter was sent to the Finance Committee in the first place, contend- 
ing that it should have been referred to the Public Health and Wel- 
fare Committee for determination of policy; that he knew very little 
about it and expressed a desire to know how it was referred to the 
Finance Committee. 

The President of the Board hastened to explain that he was taking 
full responsibility for sending the matter to the Finance Committee, 
but that in doing so he was motivated by the monetary features that 
would be involved in the event state subventions were involved. 

Supervisor MacPhee, in explaining his vote, stated that the Juvenile 
Coui't has been handling matters of this kind and therefore was fully 
qualified to handle the project. 

Thereupon the roll was called and File No. 4113 was Passed for 
Second Reading by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Lewis, 
Mancuso, McMurray, Mead, J. Joseph Sullivan — 8. 

No: Supervisor MacPhee — 1. 

Absent: Supervisors Halley, John J. Sullivan — 2. 

Consideration Continued. 

Authorizing Attendance of Director of the California Palace of the 
Legion of Honor at Annual Meeting of the Association of Art 
Museums to Be Held in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 16-17, and at the 
Annual Meeting of the American Association of Museums to Be Held 
in Chicago, 111., May 19-21, 1949. 

File No. 4101, Resolution No (Series of 1939) . 

April 25, 1949 — Consideration continued to May 2, 1949. 

Discussion. 

Information revealed that both the California Palace of the Legion 
of Honor and the M. H. DeYoung Memorial Museum are members of 
the association which is holding its meeting in Chicago, but that 
request has been made that only the Director of the California Palace 
of the Legion of Honor be permitted to attend. 

Supervisor Mead ventured the opinion that it is an unwise move to 
expend large sums of money for membership purposes in associations 
when representations at such meetings are not taken advantage of. 



MONDAY, MAY 2, 1949 307 

Motion — No Second. 

Supervisor Lewis moved that a letter be forwarded to the Director 
of the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, requesting that he 
attend the meeting in Chicago as San Francisco is very much inter- 
ested in modern museums. 

Motion lost for want of a second. 

No further action was taken with respect to the foregoing file and 
accordingly action on same was postponed for one week.

Angel Island and to Have Such Bids Available for Consideration by 
the Board Prior to May 15, 1949.

Supervisor Christopher moved the following: 

"Further Resolved, That the purpose of receiving such bids is solely 
for the purpose of determining the practicability and economic feasi- 
bility of purchasing the island and does not bind, in any way, the 
City and County of San Francisco, to either consummate the purchase 
or to complete any lease arrangement." Motion seconded by Super- 
visor Gallagher.

Statements. 

Supervisor MacPhee stated that while he and the committee were 
cognizant of the fact that the Board had instructed them to report 
the measure to it after a lapse of 60 days, they had been informed by 
the City Attorney that such a measure was not a legal one, and the 
committee, in lieu thereof, considered and drafted a proposed resolu- 
tion which apparently met with the acquiescence of all persons con- 
cerned. Further, the committee believed the proposed ordinance in 
question should remain in committee until such time as proper clari- 
fication and legality have been determined. 

Supervisor Christopher stated that he was going to vote for the 
measure now before the Board, and that if and when the City Attor- 
ney's office does bring forth an ordinance that meets all legal require- 
ments and supports the basic principles involved, he would also vote 
for that measure. 

Supervisor McMurray stated that he did not believe any member 
of the Board would vote against the pending measure; that he desired 
to go on record as voting against segregation; that he had always been 
against it, that it is unconstitutional and that if you are a Christian 
and a believer in God. you will find opposition to segregation in the 
Bible. 

Thereupon the roll was called and File No. 3900 was adopted by

Mr. Klein, Director of Finance and Records and Mr. Brooks, Chief

Supervisor Gallagher, seconded by Supervisor Fazackerley, moved 
that the number of employments be decreased from 6 to 3, $10,500. 

Discussion. 

Mr. Klein, Director of Finance and Records, explained to the Board 
the present set up in the Tax Collector's Office with respect to the 
collection and delivery of money from the parking meters. At the 
present time the parking meter collectors bring in their money and 
do not get a receipt for it. This is very poor practice and we need 
the services of at least one Senior Teller and one Teller to count 
the money and issue a receipt to the parking meter collectors. The 
Controller should not permit us to operate under these conditions. 

Mr. Harry Ross, Controller, remarked that his office makes an audit 
annually in the Tax Collector's Office but that he was not in a posi- 
tion, at this time, to make any comment on the operations of the 
Tax Collectors' Office. 



410 TUESDAY, MAY 17, 1949 

Mr. Klein said, you have Parking Meter Collectors coming in with 
the money and you have nobody in there to check it. It is necessary 
for us to take some of the Inspectors who are working in the Pur- 
chase and Use Tax Division, and have them check the money. 

Supervisor MacPhee inquired, what about the Tellers and Cashiers 
that are working in the Tax Collector's Office throughout the year? 

Mr. Klein replied, that it is not possible to shift these men that are 
required elsewhere. You need a man with a Senior Teller's rating 
and one with a Teller's rating in this case. 

Supervisor MacPhee remarked, that the Tax Collector could detail 
some of the other men in his office to do this work. He could send 
down a Senior Clerk or a Clerk to check the money. 

Mr. Thomas A. Brooks, Chief Administrative Officer, explained 
that it was very dangerous to handle this amount of money without 
supervision. There is no record at all of the money collected. You 
have the collectors bring in the money and no accounting is made of it. 
All we want is somebody to count the money and give a receipt for it. 

Whereupon the roll was called and the foregoing motion was 
carried by the following vote: 

Ayes: Supervisors Christopher, Fazackerley, Gallagher, Halley, 
MacPhee, Mancuso, J. Joseph Sullivan — 7.
